Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 14. 2 Replies

Here is an oldie, the young Richard Dawkins teaching kids about the universe. I especially like the one demonstrating how the eye evolved. This should answer those who believe it was impossible to evolve an eye. Continue

Melinda do you mean the comments from FB? I can help you! 

Comment by Sylvia on July 30, 2012 at 4:35pm

This is how it goes. I get up in the morning and sign into FB. Normally there are the ones who post God pictures and then there are the ones who thank God everyday for such a wonderful life. I see this nonsense all day long. I have a few really religious people in my life. I think they are hypocrites because they think it is ok to post their nonsense but it's not ok for me to post what I want because it could offend someone, screw that!  My husband is always telling me I don't' have to put it in their face, F that, they put their shit in my face everyday. I'm sick of it! I refuse to back down! Melinda would you like to be FB friends? El Solo Lobo, I never feels sorry for these people, if I'm smart enough to get it, they are too, they choose to be this way. 

Comment by El Solo Lobo on July 30, 2012 at 4:23pm

Here's a question: Do you ever feel genuinely sorry for a strong religious "believer" who just doesn't seem capable of 'getting it'?

Comment by El Solo Lobo on July 30, 2012 at 4:21pm

Y'all seem to be having fun.
